Silverstrand Photography Blog

Local photography company in Saratoga Springs, UT. Families, corporate, sports.


Trying to decide “WHERE” to have your family pictures taken?  Or are you a fellow photographer looking for some new locations for your next photoshoot?  Well you are in luck!  I gathered some of our client’s pictures and a few videos to hopefully give you a feel of each of these locations.  I also included the google map so you know exactly where it is located as well as if the location charges or if it is free to photograph there.  We are trying to update this page with new locations so check back for more ideas.
So far, we only have locations in Utah County.
